This lively little watercolor I did recently does not reflect the tired, exhausted soul I am tonight. But, she does have that "this ain't my first rodeo" attitude about her.
I'm keeping my grandsons who are 6 and 3 and they woke me up when the sun came up and we headed out on the farmyard to ride anything that would start and we haven't quit all day. I just cleaned up my favorite pottery bowl in pieces off my tile floor along with chocolate pebbles and milk! The dogs helped me out with the cleaning as Auggie apologized even though it was an accident. Don't ask me why I put his cereal in my favorite handmade pottery bowl? I guess grandmothers have short memories about some things.
But I do remember that this time is short, and I only have them for a couple of weeks in the summer, and even if it takes me days to recover, I'm hanging in for this whole week and will play and follow like a 6 year old and squeeze everything out of this blessing, learn from them, and give of myself, like there is no tomorrow.
